Pearl in Honey Dew 


1 honey-dew melon (approx. 3 lbs)

100g tapioca pearls (sold in ethnic food stores)

2/3 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/3 cup evaporated milk


Cut away 1/3 of the melon from top; remove seeds and lining fibers.

Soak tapioca pearls in piping-hot water (but not boiling) for 30 minutes. Start boiling tapioca pearls until they become transparent.

Put them in a fine sieve and soak in cold water to remove stickiness. Drain and lightly press dry.

Boil 2 1/2 cups of water, add sugar and tapioca pearls and bring to a boil, add coconut milk and evaporated milk and bring to a boil again.

Wait until cool, then pour into melon and place in fridge. Serve chilled.
